The Boston Bar Association (BBA) recently wrote an article, “"The Sum is Greater Than Our Parts": Locke Lord Looks Back One Year After Merge,” examining the status of Locke Lord LLP approximately one year after the 2015 merger. The BBA highlighted the strengths of the combined firm, including enhanced and expanded capabilities, a strong morale and a culture of cross-selling services internationally between the 22 Locke Lord offices.
Firm Chair Jerry Clements was quoted by the BBA in regards to the merger saying, "For us in Texas, a strong presence in the Northeast was important, and Boston was very compelling for us. It has private equity, public finance, science and technology. Those were things we felt we needed to add and build on. For example, our private equity practice was focused on energy, but Boston's was much broader. It was a case of the sum being greater than our parts."
Boston Office Managing Partner Matt McTygue and Partner Allison O’Neil were also quoted in the article and addressed the transition, culture and future for the Firm’s Boston office.
